These big E-flite T-28s fly super nice. I don't know anyone who has one who doesn't love it! This is my buddy flying his big T-28 at Warbirds and Classics 2016.

Another vid from Warbirds & Classics 2016. This PC-21 was big and it flew sweet! It was quiet, so the audio of the prop doesn't really pick up a ton.

Well, I finally got some footage of my A-7 that I didn't hate, haha! The airplane is a Jet Hangar Hobbies Kit with JetFan90 90mm EDF, Neu 1415/2Y motor and 12s 5800 mah battery. The paint scheme is from Desert Storm in a commemorative scheme from squadron VA-72. Even after 10 years, she's still fun to fly!

This is the Freewing F-5 owned and flown by AirJon at Warbirds & Classics. It's the stock fan system and this thing hauls!

I got a chance to see (and also fly) the new Freewing Mig-21 that's soon to become available. This is a really cool looking model and is a great size for an 80mm fan.

Well, it was an awesome flight until the landing...which wasn't even all that hard. But, the load was still enough to snap the wing in half! You can't have an event without a little carnage I suppose...

The nice thing about wood ARFs is that they can be a great canvas for a refinish. With a glass job, fresh paint and some detail it really ups the realism. This was a Top Flite FW-190 that had that treatment done to it and it was sweet! It also sported a rare (and scale) Romanian paint job which added to its uniqueness.

It's tough to beat a mustang and this one from Warbirds and Classics 2016 was big! It had fully functional scale exhausts too which was a nice touch.

This Dynam Bf-110 was at the Gilman Springs Scale Masters Qualifier. It had been re-painted into the correct colors and looked and flew really nicely.

Video of Bri6672's Hangar 9 Corsair with a Saito FG-84 3 cylinder radial. This thing sounds angry with that engine in there! Hangar 9 has really done a nice job on this ARF, it looks really nice as a whole and the shape is well done.

I got my start in RC modeling as a kid building plastic models in the back of my dad's hobby shop. Many of the finishing techniques I use on my scale projects I developed from building plastics. A while back I found these Polar Lights BTTF DeLorean kits and so picked a couple up to build with my kids. It was a good time!
